The "British Raj" or the British Rule of India is period of British
colonization of the Indian subcontinent. The British Raj started soon after the 1857 riots for independence (see:
Sepoy Mutiny) when the power controlled by the East India Company was transferred to the British Government, and ended with
home-rule for India (and Partition of India) in 1947.
This is a collection of period portraits, oral histories, and period social life of British Raj.
